Wow are we tired. So much driving, sightseeing, time at chop, etc. overall today was a good appointment. Dr Boyle is running some tests and wants her admitted for a few days within the next two weeks. As much as we don’t want this, we need answers, we need improvement, we need to rule out some things. We know it’s needed even though it’s going to be hard.
We will be going to an nj tube. We will be doing a full upper Gi panel (Motility) and scope. We will be checking a bunch of labs to see why she’s not showing improvement after all this. Her neuro Gi mentioned a few times that he thinks her autonomic nervous system is not acting correctly. We need to see In which way it’s acting up
The autonomic nervous system is a control system that acts largely unconsciously and regulates bodily functions such as the heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, pupillary response, urination, and sexual arousal. This system is the primary mechanism in control of the fight-or-flight response.
